About Legalization

Legalization

Legalization is a process you are sometimes required before you submit a document to a foreign country. If you see words such as Legalization, Legalisation, Authentication, Attestation, Apostille, etc. in the instruction letter on your hand, you may be required to get the document legalized before you submit it.

Type of Legalization in Japan

Apostille

Japan is a signatory country of Convention de La Haye du 5 octobre 1961, therefore Apostille is one of possible ways to legalize a document. In Japan, MOFA, Ministry of Foreign Affaiars, is in charge of Apostille.

Authentication by Japan MOFA + Authentication by Foreign Delegate in Japan

Besides Apostille, MOFA can authenticate an official seal on a public document such as family register, certificate of acceptance, school certificate, etc. This authentication is called /ko-i-n-ka-ku-ni-n/ in Japanese.

Authentication of Official Seals by Japanese MOFA should be followed by Authentication by Foreign Consul in Japan. This authentication is called /ryo-ji-ni-n-sho/ in Japanese.
